Draft Scout A.J. Francis News
03/07/15 - DT A.J. Francis, who was scheduled to become an exclusive-rights free agent March 10, re-signed with the team Saturday (March 7). The 6-5, 330-pound Francis spent the entire 2014 season with the Dolphins on injured reserve. He originally was signed by Miami on May 3, 2013 as an undrafted college free agent and spent training camp with the Dolphins before being waived on August 31. He then spent time on the New England Patriots practice squad prior to being signed by the Dolphins to the active roster, where he was inactive for the final five games of the season.
03/04/15 - DT A.J. Francis has spent much of his previous two seasons injured or on the inactive list. But Miami likes him and needs defensive tackles, so he'll likely get another shot. There's a need for run-stuffers, so Francis' skill is welcome.
08/27/14 - DT A.J. Francis was placed on reserve/injured by the Dolphins Tuesday (Aug. 26)
11/27/13 - DT A.J. Francis was signed from New England's practice squad and put on the 53-man roster. There's a chance Francis, who was with the Dolphins during training camp, could lend support to a DT rotation that's been giving up lots of rushing yards.
09/11/13 - DT A.J. Francis was waived by the Patriots Saturday.
